Integration of strategy and leadership: an introduction

Cleverton Rodrigues Fernandes, Anielson Barbosa da Silva


Strategy and leadership are concepts that are typically examined individually, as studies that focus on this combination these themes are still rare. The current article aims to examine the possibilities with regard to the conceptual integration of strategy and leadership through a review from 2003 to 2014.  During the selection and classification processes, specific types of topics and articles were adopted. Regarding the typologies, the articles were classified into the following four groups: case studies, conceptual articles, literature reviews and empirical-technical articles. In the current study, data collection was performed using the CAPES Periodicals Portal. Subsequently, the Strategy & Leadership journal was chosen because it had the greatest number of articles published regarding the relevant topic. These articles were then read and analysed. The results of the review led to the confirmation of the following four categories: strategic management, leadership practices, leadership as a strategy and strategic leadership. This article analysis allowed for the identification and confirmation of specific themes that were associated with each category and may support future research, which is the main academic contribution of the current article.
